Sorry about the late delay since I posted this topic back in April of 2012. Heat was the issue with this proc. I bought a 150 watt waste heat down blowing cooler and idle temps were 33c . Max were 46 to 52c when running heavy benchmarking. Found out that these phenom's don't like anything higher than 62c for any period of time. (not good for them)
I hope this helps others out there with 940 or higher phenoms. I recently sold the system after fixing the mystery heat issue. The stock copper heat pipe cooler that Amd supplied with this proc is not really enough for gaming and mild overclocking.
